    Been a member on here since 2013 since I was always interested in having my own chickens and now today finally got my 1st chicks. Went to the local feed store and picked out 4 baby hens, RI Red, barred Plymouth Rock, black sex link, and a golden comet all about a week to 2 weeks old. Very excited to watch these girls grow and supply my family with fresh eggs. I am open to any and all tips since I am new to this. Glad to be apart of the community and hope to hear from fellow chicken owners.

    Hi and a warm welcome to BYC - great to hear that you have finally got your chicks! Whilst you have been a member for a while, and i am sure you have done so in the past, the Learning Centre and your state thread are good sources of information to help you along the way. Reading is very different from experience, so if you need any help, don't hesitate the post - we like to help each other out.

    All the best

    Congratulations on getting your chicks, you should get plenty of eggs once they are old enough to lay. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Also, the Search feature is very helpful finding information (upper left, under the logo).

    It's nice to have you here!
